…or rather, Whew!!

I was really dreading this weeks Weight on Wednesday check in. However, I am relived to say, “I have nothing to report!”

Yep… Even after all that Easter candy, desserts and Easter Salad, a couple heavenly mochas, all the chocolate my dear children keep sharing with me, Hubby’s birthday cake, that delicious HUGE burger with sweet potato fries I had when Hubby & I went out to dinner Monday night, and the yummy Crunchwrap I had for dinner last night, I didn’t gain anything!!!

The bad thing is I didn’t lose anything either, and my measurements are exactly the same, buy hey, I’ll take it!

I had just better straighten up my food choices this week! To see every one else’s Week 4 results click here.

Happy Easter Wednesday!

    I like this. I am starting today, or I guess next week. My biggest struggle is finding time to exercise. I am NOT a morning person, so I need to become one! It does help to be light out later now, I can walk when DH gets home.

    I have to lose 30 before getting pregnant again. (although, I would love to lose 50) I have been diabetic since age 10 and with each pregnancy automatically gain 60 lbs.

    I think you look beautiful!

    Great Jamie!! The more of us the better! We can keep each other motivated 🙂

    It can be so hard to lose the weight gained from pregnancy! This last pregnancy I got up to my biggest weight ever, and outweighed my hubby by almost 30 pounds! Aargghh! My brother came over one night when I was full term and all he could say was “Woah!” when he saw me! 🙂

    Anyhow, as of last week, I am now weighing my pre-Snuggles weight which is finally less than hubby once again! 🙂 (We are about the same height.)

    I would love to lose another 20 pounds… However, I would be happy with even another 15! We’ll see!

    Oh, and thank you for the complement! You too Amy! You are both beautiful as well!

    And Anonymous… I am exercising my fingers… Just not with Quickbooks open… I will get on that bookkeeping soon! 😉

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
